Oil light on 99' Jetta TDI

I just got an oil change and after about 200 miles the oil light flashed on. I checked the oil level and it was full and there were no leaks around the oil filter or engine. It flashed once more but went off before I could pull over and then drove another 100 miles and never came on again. Just wondering what might cause this. Car has 227,000 miles on it.

Hi,
The "oil light" is actually a "low oil pressure" light, and not a "low oil level" light. I would get it checked out at a garage asap.
Did they change the filter at the same time? D

You have two problems going on.
The oil light is telling you the engine oil pressure is low. If the oil level is full, the sending unit for the light is faulty, or you actually do have low oil pressure.
The codes are for a leak in the EVAP system which could be the gas cap but could also be a number of other things. There are valves and hoses that could leak.
The engine oil pressure would need to be checked with a mechanical gauge, and the gas tank venting system would need to be tested for leaks.

well so if i understand right you have no oil in the vehicle? or have you checked the oiil dipstick, GM is known to burn oil so if you go alot more than three thousand miles between oil changes than that will cause the oil to burn off and cause the lights to come on, or you might have a leaky filter or drain plug and its loosing oil, so first pull he diptick check level and if you need oil just go get an oil change and they snould let you know of any leaks there may be

Very nice to know that somebody care of his car.I understood that this is 1.9 TDI JETTA in124000 miles.To avoid problems in the future you have to change gearbox oil by recommended from a manufacturer.Second-Check all wheel bearings/rear ones/ for noise.Also make suspension test. any way you have to visit vw workshop for full diagnostic of the JETTA

I have a 2003 Jetta TDI with 90k. Until recently I have consistently gotten 46-48 mpg. Over the past 3 months the mpg has been decreasing. The current mpg is about 30. I change the oil every 3k...


don't know about the MPG it could be a lot of things. I have a 2001 Jetta TDI. You should NEVER change the oil at 3K miles. VW recommends 10K miles for a reason. The Synthetic oil has additives to remove varnish and it does that but it needs some time to replace the varnish and properly protect sensitive engine parts. 3K is oil changes are not a good thing for a TDI......Just use the right oil and change at 10K
